Of the 39k gun related deaths per year only about 1,600 are from rifles of all types. Meanwhile close to 2/3 of gun related deaths are caused by suicide. We need mental healthcare reform far more than we need as assault weapons ban. Further depending on which sets of stats between 85-373 people die from mass shootings. The FBI says 85 people the Gun Violence Archive says 373. Either way you are more likely to be killed by a police officer than in a mass shooting. Please stop this fear mongering surrounding semiautomatic rifles. They are not the problem.
As residents of the state of Missouri, my family very much believes in the Second Amendment. I personally carry a handgun with me at all times for defense of myself, family, and others. This bill is simply ridiculous and a blatant infringement upon not only my God-given rights as a human but the rights protected under our Constitution. Please do everything in your power to let me continue to be able to protect my family in the way that I feel is best.
